Don't have to much expectation of the collection but they do have a few nice pieces of art. Personally I liked their Eastern Collection, not very extensive but interesting pieces. The price should not withhold you of a visit.

There are some really great paintings of Saint Matthew & Luke in the museum. The facility could really use your support. It's easy to locate being not far from the city garden, and i highly recommend a visit!
